Research Overview: 

Resisting one’s oppression is difficult, costly, and often futile.  Why should we do it anyway?   I am particularly interested in the normative reasons that victims have for (and against) resisting their oppression, what resistance entails for victims who are differently situated, and how conditions of oppression shape what it means to live a good and meaningful life. More specifically, I argue that victims’ personal projects and relationships provide distinctive reasons to resist their oppression, that such reasons are not guaranteed to cohere with impartial considerations of justice and morality, and that this ought to inform our ethical understanding of resistance more generally.
